Bomb Mexico?

Sometimes it's hard to tell whether a politician is crazy or just joking. The problem is usually that no one is laughing. Such was the case recently when two candidates offered a radical solution to the humanitarian crisis on the Texas border: Bomb Mexico. Serious or not, it shows how far the anti-immigrant tide has carried some politicians from realistically addressing border security and immigration reform.

Scottish Referendum Gives Reasons to be Hopeful

Democrats Will Never Fix Obamacare

"If you like your health plan, you can keep it" was last year's Lie of the Year. When millions of cancellations stacked up, the game of make-believe was over. So the Democrats, hoping to survive another election cycle, shifted to a new mantra: they claim they want to fix the law. The facts show this is just another Obamacare lie.

More than a Military Response Required to Beat ISIS

As ISIS appears to be gaining ground in Iraq, there seems to be a lack of a grand strategy coming out of the White House. The low hum of drone warfare, as opposed to coordinated decisive victories like in Irbil, creates a greater potential for feeding ISIS' propaganda machine. The United States must think more comprehensively than a military intervention.

Christie’s Big Problem isn’t the Bridge, it’s the Economy

On the long road to 2016, Chris Christie would be well advised to remember the 1992 Clinton adage, "It's the economy, stupid." Because it's the Jersey economy - not the bridge scandal - that's likely to dog his nascent steps toward the GOP nomination.

Gillibrand Is Offside

Politicians write books to establish bona fides, earn money, or posit for higher office. A new one by Kirsten Gillibrand, the popular Democratic senator from New York who once had an A rating from the NRA, seems to have the unintended consequence of shooting its author in the foot.

We Are All Roger Goodell

What if we held politicians to the same standards as football players? When football players break the law, Americans demand they be benched, cut, or suspended before they get due process. But when politicians are indicted they get to stick around, spending our money until a jury of their peers-there's a terrifying thought-passes judgment. It's possible that Americans have misplaced priorities.

Congress Votes for More War in the Middle East

Last week, the House and Senate voted to rubber stamp President Obama's war plans for the Middle East. Both bodies, on a bipartisan basis, authorized the US to begin openly training and arming the rebels who have been fighting for three years to overthrow the Assad government in Syria.
